What is a Sponge cake
A sponge cake is based on flour, sugar, melted butter and eggs, and it is sometimes leavened with baking powder. It is a very light cake with a spongy texture and a buttery flavor. What is so great about a sponge cake is that you can give it any flavor you want! This sponge cake mixes the tartness of the lemon and the freshness of the basil. Cover this cake with a sweet lemon cheese sauce, there is nothing like it!
